Sheriff Opposes Medical Marijuana

Illinois lawmakers are still debating whether to allow doctors to prescribe marijuana for very ill people… but one local lawman says they should reject the idea. 


Sangamon County Sheriff Neil Williamson says giving people access to marijuana for any reason is simply going to make it easier for people who shouldn’t have it to obtain it. 


Williamson says introducing cannabis into the mix… even to treat the symptoms of serious illnesses… will make matters more complicated for law enforcement and will become, in his words, a “slippery slope.”
